obama. romney had to reach a threshold level, a comfort place with voters. they simply did not do that. they shoved it off until the convention and you did not happen there. the ball simply never moved forward until he got up in the first debate in hit a grand slam. he came through in a way that the campaign had not at that point. second and third performances -- even though people say president obama won -- i know about debate scoring. people do it like a high-school debate or boxing or olympic diving and they want to do points. when i look at debates i think, do people looked at one or both candidates differently after the debase them before? you had people who had just seen this character of romney that came from the obama -- first of all, from the republican primaries where he turned himself into a pretzel, a moderately conservative guy. i met him when he was running for senate against senator kennedy in 1994. he was a relatively non- ideological guy. i would have put him on the 35- 40 yard line on the right side. he had to head into the red zone and go to the 2 yard line. ron paul
, the public started to pick the candidate. the public -- the registered voter summit romney. it is a new world of politics and now with the internet, twitter, is so instantaneous, the republican public, registered republicans are selecting candidates and they selected mccain, the right wing said they did not like and they selected from the that the bright wing said they did not like. you can i go for the right. they are in a dilemma. tavis: it is a new ball game. this is not rocket science. i cannot figure out, i do not know how you expect any candidate on the republican ticket to run far right to get the nomination, and then to hasselbeck to the middle for the general election without the democratic whooping him upside his head about flip-floping. once you get to the general election, you have flip-flop so much, -- >> what do you do? you need the right guy. have beenbe, i objective. i will never tell who have -- i have voted for. i have voted for democrats and independents. the perfect guy may be marco rubio. latin, florida, changing state to appeal, young. he is conservative but he has to ap
showed that mitt romney lost every demographic-- blacks, hispanics, and asians-- other than white voters, who favored the republican nominee. romney won among older voters, buthe esident led among those under age 44. and he captured 60% of the 18- to 29-year-old vote, which turned out in greater numbers than in 2008. exit polls also sampled attitudes on the tea party. 21% said they support the movement. 30% opposed it and 42% declared themselves neutral. we do our own sampling now, with three party members: leslie sanchez, a republican strategist and author of "los republicanos: why hispanics and republicans need each other." matt kibbe, president and c.o. ofreedomwork an ganition that's supported tea party rallies and promotes limited government and lower taxes. and brad dayspring, a senior adviser to the conservative super pac y.g. action fund. y-g stands for young guns. he's a former aide to house majority leader eric cantor. leslie sanchez, i want to start with you. simple question: what is the number-one lesson republicans should take from tuesday's election? >> most importantly, t
was a very good candidate. what i will say is that in the exit polls, mitt romney actually won voters who said -- or mitt romney was considered the candidate who had the better plan on the economy. when they asked who do you trust more to handle the economy, mitt romney or barack obama, mitt romney won that question. but he lost the question of who cares about people like me. i think by an 82-17 margin. so that i really think -- >> hang on. wait a minute. let me just turn to elise, the other female republican we have here. it wasn't about the economy. if it had been, as the polls suggested, mitt romney would have won. >> well, it should have been about the economy but i think that the democrats did an amazing job of making this -- really amplifying what is clearly a problem within the republican party, how we're messaging about women. the fact that we were even discussing birth control, the fact that, you know, the whole forcible rape was even part of the conversation when the polls clearly show i think that millenials are moving in a much more libertarian position when it comes to social
alienated voters and cost romney the election. it's complicated. here's what house speaker john boehner said today in an interview with diane sawyer. >> is the tea party going to be by your side through this? >> we've got members from all different types of -- all walks of life, if you will. >> do you think they come back changed by this election? >> listen, i think this has been the most misreported story of my two years tenure. we don't have a tea party caucus to speak of in the house. all of us who were elected in 2010 were supported by the tea party. these are ordinary americans who have taken a more active role in our government. they want solutions. but we've all come a long way over the last two years, i think we all understand each other a lot better. >> joining me now, former white house press secretary ari fleischer, unpaid occasional communications advisor to the romney campaign. also van jones, former special advisor to the obama white house. a ari, what about that? is the tea party to blame for fielding some candidates who weren't ready for prime time, for some of the problems
for obama by a 9-1 margin. >> bill: first of all that is who mitt romney is. mitt romney has told us himself he only hangs out with people that own nascar teams, nfl teams and have dressage horses. but it's like forcing people to pay a poll tax, or forcing them to have voter id. that's suppressing the vote. telling the truth about mitt romney wasn't suppressing the vote. >> president obama has become the first president in history to win -- >> you keep saying that but he won, karl, he won. >> but you know what every candidate looks perfect on paper -- >> bill: yeah, guess what you don't look perfect on paper or television. karl rove why does anybody still believe him? now quickly, so president obama giving a speech today at the white house. he is going to put forth his plan for deficit reduction. that's the first thing. the questions that i have -- and i will be there today -- what else is the president going to push for? he is soon going to push for comprehensive well well -- immigration reform. and stop employers from blocking employees from forming a union. i
today whether president obama or mitt romney won in florida. election voters there are still counting ballots. it appears the president will win the sunshine state. he leads romney by 55,000 votes, and most of the outstanding ballots are from democratic leaning counties. the win would give president obama 323 electoral votes to romney's 206. >>> another george bush is preparing to run for office in texas. george p. bush completed paperwork to run for office in the lone star state. he is the nephew of former president george w. bush and the son of former florida governor jeb bush. it's not clear what office he'll seek. >>> closer to home, terry mcauliffe says he wants another shot at becoming virginia's governor. the former dnc chairman is running again next year. he ran in 2009 but lost the party's nomination to state senator craig daets. lieutenant governor bill bolling and attorney general ken cuccinelli are also seeking the nomination. >>> military jets were called in to escort a plane to dulles international after a pilot declared an emergency moments before landing. united flight
on the romney trail talking to partis partisan republican voters and it's going to take a long time for this, you know, recognition that the republican party needs to compromise, to filter down to these partisan republican voters. >> if it even does. >> right. >> there's no appetite for compromise on the ground in ohio, for example, among partisan republicans. >> we're talking about a fiscal cliff, that is the metaphor we decided applied here. bob rice tweeted today, i think he's right, it's a hill. >> it's a curve. >> a slope. >> yeah. the thing about, you know, yes, taxes would go up immediately, yes spending would go down immediately, but that's day by day over years. what is a cliff course is the debt ceiling debate which is going to come up again and what's -- what makes this, among other things, such a fantastic chess game for the president and congress, is that if they allow the fiscal cliff to happen, the taxes to go up and the spending to go down, suddenly treasury is full of money to postpone the debt ceiling problem. so, he's got all kinds of crafty weapons. >> however, there is a
. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo since romney and electoral landslide tuesday night. i feel like i have become the chief psychologist for conservatives. voters who were young conservative thinkers, thinkers young conservatives in the 1980s are now wondering whether all is lost ann coulter was on my radio show yesterday. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. we have more takers than makers and it's over. the country that no longer is interested in conservative ideas. it is interested in handouts. >> >> laura: this frustration and dejection is understandable. i, like many conservatives, thought mitt romney would pull out a victory, i, like many republicans, am extremely disappointed. the autopsy of what went wrong is ongoing. there will be conflicting opinions on the cause of death for the romney campaign and all those senate races. i happen to think that mitt romney ran an overly cautious and defensive campaign which allowed the other side to define him. perhaps with the exception being that first debate. some establishment rep
telling fact about this election is that romney ran as well among white voters as any challenger ever. the three best performances among white voters by republican challengers ronald reagan, 56% in 1980, george h. w. bush, 59% in 1980, and dwight eisenhower 60% and 9052. in each case that was sufficient to win, knowing to win but win a landslide election. in this case mitt romney won 59% of white voters and lost. in a race that was very close and the popular vote but really not that competitive in the electoral college in the end. i mean, that is kind of a striking moment. mont blanc, the terrific political scientist and historian said in a couple years ago, most american history white majorities have ruled. candidates of most whites -- barack obama became the first nominee to lose weight by double-digit and went on to win but when the biggest democratic victory in 44 years. and in this election he lost white voters by 20 points and one. and he won because democrat republicans in effect are conceding, once again in this election 80% of the growing minority population. i wrote in augus
. the fact that the electorate this time, the change in the percentages among white voters. if the romney campaign got al, the percentages they thought they needed to we might be talking about a different result . much bigger story to the failure to provide a clear contrast in competing views of the way that the country is going to move toward. lou: a clear contrast. basically the republicans took the day off. they just didn't show up. these are extraordinary numbers, the level of turnover republicans. i'm hearing all of this stuff from have reached to this group, change the message, adopt policies, and all of which may be true. i would support it, but the fact is, that does not look like the reason that romney lost. does it? >> well, i'm sorry if i did not directly answer your message. that is not the reason. lou: we will catch up. >> they're racial analysis is not the reason that romney african americans supported a fellow african american the same way irish catholics to, but if barack obama had been against helping people who are in the underclass, the lower economic level, if he had n
and minorities. bill waland has worked on gubernatorial campaigns. >> romney did work among asian voters than he did among hispanic voters. it's a series of riddles that the republican party has disconnected so vastly. >> reporter: democrats secured the first supermajority in the legislature in decades. >> i think we need to do some soul searching. how we're doing as a party. >> reporter: from 36% of voters in 1996 to 29% this year. while the number of no party preference voters has almost doubled at the same time from 11% to 21%. >> reporter: the republican party right now is second tier status. >> i think there's a great future for the party. i don't think it was a bad night. i think what it was was an awakening. >> reporter: an awakening to reach out to more people and an opportunity to come back stronger. live in los altos, maureen naylor. >>> in just minutes, a race that is too close to call. >>> and the latest blow, a nor'easter. it brought snow to large parts of new york and new jersey that had been battered already by superstorm sandy last week. more power lines were also brought down. t

(vo) jennifer granholm ... >>for every discouraged voter, there are ten angry ones taking action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. ñ

romney. he may not have been the perfect candidate for 2012 given his corporate turnaround background, secondly, he did not get something republicans have counted on and that is the white working-class voters. in states like ohio, the ads attacking mayor romney as a corporate raider and buccaneer that went on for many months put on by the obama campaign seemed to work. the white working-class vote did not turn out for mitt romney in the numbers he needed. host: you had a piece yesterday, "the survivor in chief." you know to that they expose the myth of the enthusiastic democratic voter. guest: it was a myth i subscribe to for a while. i am sure you read about this over and over again. the democratic voters were dispirited and they were not feeling enthusiastic about the campaign. it was the conservatives and republicans fired up and getting ready to go. the notion was, he would have this surge of republican voters and a depressed democratic turnout. there was a pretty good turn out of republican voters, but there was a surge of democratic voters. it was amazing how well obama did at p
. mitt romney made significant inroads among many groups. not all groups, but many groups. young voters, up white men and women, a number of constituencies and proving their showings. yet there was a feeling that it did not go well. if you are a democrat -- a lot of this is about expectations. we have had three way the elections in a row. the thing we can agree upon is that this was not -- it seems this was an election where the basis held. the broad divisions that american would have liked became apparent. what does this election about? look at the congressional level and the presidential level. their word two abroad a different use of government and whether it was-their word two, a broad, and different views of government and whether it was helpful or hurtful. whether to let the free market work its magic and create jobs and opportunity. there's also the nitty gritty part of the campaign. the early ads in a swing state to get out the vote. on the broad themes, the presidential race was about. -- split 50/50. it showed a slight advantage to the democrats. that has to do that demographi
. the single most telling fact about this election is mitt romney brand as well among white voters as in the republican challenger ever in the history of polling. 56% in 1980, 59% in 1988, and 60% in 1952. that was sufficient to win a landslide election. in this case, mitt romney won 59% of white voters and lost. but not the competitive in the electoral college in the end. a terrific political scientist told me for the majority of history white majorites have ruled. in 2008, president obama lsot whites by double digits and won. in this election, he lost them by 20 points and won because democrat republicans are conceding once again in this election 80% of their growing growinghe minority population. if he matched that again and they were at least that much of the vote, he could get a majority of the national vote with only about 40% of whites. 80, 39, 28. the fundamental fallacy that many conservative analysts had was the assumption that 2008 was the result of some surge because of barack obama. it was a continuation of the trend line. we have gone from 91% to 72% over that time. i
that the obama people decided. >> reporter: romney's campaign expected the number of minority voters to be closer to the 2004 election. instead the number of minorities voting in 2012 were like the numbers in 2008 when a wave of minority support elected the nation's first black president. >> romney's companies were pioneers in shipping u.s. jobs overseas. >> reporter: so what happened? over the summer the campaign committed what may have been its most critical error, not responding to an onslaught of negative ads by president obama that personally and effectively targeted romney as ceo of bain capital for closing companies. >> i come from the old school that a political attack unanswered is a political attack admitted. >> reporter: along the way there were other strategic missteps. the campaign didn't take seriously romney's foreign trips, which had its share of gaffes and did little to bolster his image as a world leader. after months of the bain attacks, republican national convention, the most enduring image was not of romney but of clint eastwood talking
until the last minute they were going to win. >> the romney people looked at a model for turnout that was less accurate than the model for turnout that the obama people decided. >> reporter: romney's campaign expected the number of minority voters to be closer to the 2004 election. instead the number of minorities voting in 2012 were like the numbers in 2008 when a wave of minority support elected the nation's first black president. >> romney's companies were pioneers of shipping u.s. jobs overseas. >> reporter: so what happened? over the summer the campaign committed what may have been its most critical error not responding to an onslaught of negative ads by president obama that personally and effectively targeted romney ceo of bain capital foreclosing companies. >> i come from the old school that a political attack unanswered is a political attack admitted. >> reporter: along the way there were other strategic missteps. the campaign didn't take seriously romney's foreign trips which had its share of gaffes and did little to bolster his image as a world leader. and after months
would appeal to hispanics and asians just like i would appeal to a working class white voters. they're taxpayers. mitt romney had a tax plan which i think the average taxpayer never quite understood how it was going to affect them. i blogged, again, about this today. if you went to mitt romney's website with a tax calculator, didn't exist. you had no idea how his tax plan was going to affect you. >> you know, jennifer ruben, i also believe the republican party has just got to be the party of inclusion. my mentor, formally, the late great jack kent. the party of opportunity. the party of inclusion. the party welcoming people. and i am specifically thinking about the latino, hispanic problem. i'm also thinking about the asian problem. i'm also thinking about the african-american problem. jen, if republican presidential candidates continue to lose 70% of the latino vote, for example, we will never elect another republican president in my lifetime. >> that's right. it might work in an off-year election when the electoral is whiter, older, more economically sophisticated. but in a broad-
candidate like mitt romney. the white establishment is now the minority. and the voters, many of them, feel the economic system is stacked against them and they want stuff. you'll see a tremendous hispanic vote for president obama. overwhelming black vote for president obama. and women will probably break president obama's way. people feel they are entitled to things, and which candidate between the two is going to give them things? >> that was bill o'reilly, tavis smiley. >> you asked a moment ago if i was watching fox on election night the answer was no and this is precisely why. it is also why i don't watch a lot of msnbc, either. i do not like being spun to the right or the left. what i prefer is to get at some truth, and that is why i appreciate "democracy now!" and other programs that try to get the hard truth that americans don't want to deal with. i don't know where to start constructing what i just heard. this is precisely why the republicans lost. if they think this is the narrative that will help them win in the future, they need to put down the crack pipe. they're stuck on stupi

( laughter ). but the real problem here wasn't the voters' inexplicable decision to be less white. it was the ruthless obama smear machine. >> the obama campaign running a very aggressive early effort to characterize mitt romney as a corporate raider and his time at bain capital. >> that he was a vulture, vampire, vulture capitalist. >> jon: it was so unfair! i mean, where did that stuff come from anyway? >> there's a real difference between venture capitalism and vulture capitalism. >> pretty hard to justify rich people figuring out clever legal ways to loot a company. >> do you really believe this company wants to elect a wall street financier. >> there was a steel mill that bain swept in, took that company over. >> bain sometimes behaved in behavior where they looted a couple and left behind 1700 unemployed people. >> jon: damn you, obama! that's coming frommed in your own house. and even the right's beloved super pac designed to do to obama what obama did to romney backfired. remember aidle son, las vegas billionaire? said he's give up to $100 million to help romney defeat t
